There is 1 nurse you have missed out, Annie Wilkes from Misery, don't think she would be popular with authors lol. If not going off "looks", I would actually choose Matron (Hattie Jacques) from the Carry on films who unfortunately isn't on this list. She was someone you wouldn't mess with and someone that would make sure you got better, if you want to or not.

Emergency!  (1972-1979)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068067/reference
The crew of Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 51,
particularly the paramedic team,
and Rampart Hospital respond to emergencies in their operating area.
This show was truly a family affair because Julie London was at the time married to Bobby Troup and had been hired by her previous husband Jack Webb, who was the series' creator and producer.

Helen Verbit appeared in the same chapter as a nurse, but the nurse in the photo is not her, it's Lynda Carter.

Peter,

Thank you for adding:
Lt. Ann Girard (Betsy Palmer) in Mister Roberts (1955)
Ensign Nellie Forbush, USN (Mitzi Gaynor) in South Pacific (1958)

It's a shame that Sister Kenny (1946) only has 886 votes.

By the way, you need to add the name, Lt. Ann Girard, to number 13.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I don't really want to add them now that the poll is live. There are already many options, and the vote counts on the titles don't suggest that they are obvious omissions that would get many votes.

Muhahahahaha.

Wasn't me... I voted for Beckinsale.

I only suggested her to try to annoy Peter; I was as surprised as anyone that he had actually included her.

I think a lot of people don't actually read the question; they just vote for one of the most well-known characters.

I bet if someone made a poll "Who would be your ideal housemate" and included Heath Ledger's Joker; he would get the most votes.
